Can we stop acting like eating healthy is only for people who wanna lose weight?
I’m sick of going for the healthy option and people saying “get something good! You’re already skinny” or when suggesting a healthy recipe to others and they say “I’m not looking to lose weight”
EATING HEALTHY IS NOT JUST ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS.
Eating healthy is literally so your body can be healthy. So you can feel better. So you can perform better. So you can take care of and nourish your body properly. I’m not eating spinach because I wanna lose weight I’m eating spinach because I want to live longer and feel better.
Today I was approached by a woman at the gym . She goes , “how do you have the courage to walk around in shorts showing the world my cellulites …” I was extremely shocked and simply told her ‘I love my body and my thick thighs which come with cellulites.’ She then looked at me with slight disgust and I proceeded by wishing her a great workout. We need to stop body shaming each other and encourage each other more . If anyone doesn’t like your stretch marks, rolls, cellulite or anything else ignore them. Life is too short to be self-conscious over somebody else’s problem.
I did it! I don’t know how but I lost eleven lbs in three weeks and was able to hit my goal weight by my last doctor’s appt! The picture showing 159.8 was three days ago, and yesterday I weighed in at 158. I’m so proud of myself for accomplishing what I set out to do. I did NOT think I would be able to get back to this weight no matter how much I worked. Despite the self doubt I persevered, I worked very hard, and I did what I set out to do. It is possible; keep working for what you want. I’ve learned that there are no easy ways out. You just have to remind yourself that you are in control, and your decisions are the only thing that will help get you to your goal or take you further away from it.
It’s so strange to look back at the summer before coming to college…my life has changed so much since. I can honestly say I did not partake in the freshman 15 and have loved living where I have constant support from friends, a gym membership, and healthy food readily available to me. It’s been a long road, but I’m sure glad I took it.
Doc: “What are your thoughts on losing some weight?” Me: “Meh. It’s not a priority right now.” Doc: “Maintaining a healthy weight is important for your long-term health.” Me: “I’m sure it is. But when your house is burning down, you don’t waste energy on rearranging the furniture.”
Not sure how long this particular doc is gonna last.
Same tummy different day. This is what 10 months of hard work, slacking, self loathing, and learning to love my body looks like. Weight loss is not linear, you have ups and downs and highs and lows. But as long as you never give up, you WILL see results…. with patience of course 💪🏾💕
